False alarm at Ezeiza airport in an operation for suspicious package


A sector of the Ezeiza International Airport check-in hall must have been evacuated in the presence of luggage that had been left apparently abandoned.

The fire brigade and the Airport Security Police Explosives Brigade intervened due to the fact, operating that gave negative result.

The incident was recorded amid an unusual movement of foreign passengers who are struggling to leave the country on the last day of flights to Europe and the United States.

The luggage was discovered in the middle of the hall, without identification, which led to the implementation of security protocols for these cases, which extended a fence and evicted the passengers who at that time were carrying out the check-in procedures.

The rest of the air station, including the counters of the sector closest to the arrivals area, continued to operate normally.
